Suspense persists over Uruli Kanchan police station
Gupta said a proposal has already been sent to the government to make Uruli Kanchan a separate police station. With the division of Loni Kalbhor police station, an independent police station will be set up at Uruli Kanchan. However, the government has to spend Rs 8 crore to set up a new police station. Also, the whole process is expected to take at least 10 months to complete. However, this period can be further extended by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Uruli Kanchan police station may remain under Pune rural police.
